Live At Leeds: Pulled Apart By Horses: ‘We Can’t Wait’

Leeds group schedule in a homecoming ahead of their follow-up to 2012’s ‘Tough Love’.

If any band are going to bring down the house when it comes to this year’s Live At Leeds, it’s going to be Pulled Apart By Horses. Not only are they ferocious in any and all live arenas they’re faced with, but this time, they’ll be on their home turf. The evening’s not going to be a quiet one, when it comes to DIY’s stage at the Brudenell Social Club. That much is for sure.

“We can’t wait,” admits the band’s Lee Vincent. “Having time off to regroup, write and record has been amazing, but we’re definitely ready to get back in the van. It’s gonna be a shock to the system though,” he laughs, “we’ve definitely let ourselves go a bit!”

Their festival headliner is due to take place midway through their triumphant return to the touring circuit, after having taken some well-deserved downtime to work on the follow-up to 2012’s ‘Tough Love’.

“The album is done, and we’re just talking to potential mixers right now. It sounds amazing so far and we’re incredibly happy with it,” the drummer divulges. “It’s quite varied I guess as far as direction goes, but it’s still definitely PABH. We wanted to inject more melody into things but without making things sound diluted or weak. It’s still pretty ferocious!”

“We’ll be playing a few new tunes for sure,” he also confirms, looking ahead to their upcoming UK tour, “but we’re not gonna ram a load of new songs down people’s throats. They’ll be peppered subtly over a set of oldies. We’re gonna try and do some old stuff that we’ve never played live before too.”

As for their stint at Live At Leeds, though, there’s no joking around: it’s set to be one of the must-see sets of the weekend. “Oh, that is going to be pure insanity! The Brudenell is the epicentre of the Leeds music community and it always feels like going home when we play there. It’s gonna be one sweaty party!’
